Her past explorations, various forms of art, old architecture, as well as curiosity about unfamiliar places influence her work. Anastasia’s biggest indirect influence is international music and jazz, which she often listens to while painting.

Mixing natural and surreal elements with distinguishable buildings, cities, and landscapes, Anastasia creates works in the style of contemporary impressionism. The main subject matter of Anastasia’s paintings is world destinations –which can be canals of Venice or Amsterdam, peaks of Barcelona, reds of Moscow, or the landscapes of her current hometown, Chicago.

Anastasia Mak has a broad group of collectors, ranging from college students to corporate executives. “To me, making art is both challenging and entertaining,” says she. “I enjoy passing great pleasure I feel from creating paintings to those who acquire them. My art exists to fulfill souls and relieve stress. While the actual process of painting is driven by my experiences and imagination, I let the audience find their own life force in my work – be it happy, nostalgic, mysterious, or purely decorative.”
